This week we will hear Frank Ostaseski reading from his book, The Five Invitations. This week we will hear Frank presenting the first chapter in the Fifth invitation (“Cultivate ‘Don’t Know’ Mind”). The chapter is titled “The Story of Forgetfulness” and begins with a quote by Barbara Kingsolver: “A memory is a complicated thing, a relative to truth, but not its twin.”

Each of the chapters in this book stands alone. It isn’t necessary to have heard any of the others in order to get deep meaning from an individual chapter.
